Technical Specs

Progress DataDirect SequeLink Client for JDBC
Version 6.0

System Requirements

You can develop applications for the JDBC Client using J2SE 1.4.2 or higher, and the following APIs, which are supplied with the JDBC Client:

  • JDBC 2.0 Optional Package
  • JNDI 1.2
  • JTA 1.0.1

 JDBC 3.0 API  J2SE 1.4.2 or higher
 J2EE Connector Architecture  J2SE 1.4.2 or higher
 JDBC 2.0 Core API  J2SE 1.4.2 or higher
 JDBC 2.0 Optional Package
  • XADataSource
  • DataSource, ConnectionPoolDataSource
 J2SE 1.4.2 or higher
  • J2SE 1.4.2 or higher and minimum J2EE 1.2
  • JNDI 1.2

Standard installations of J2SE on some platforms do not include the jar file containing the extended encoding set that is required to support some of the less common database code pages. To verify whether your J2SE version provides extended code page support, check that charsets.jar is installed in the lib subdirectory of your J2SE installation directory.

If you do not have the required file, re-install J2SE, making sure you install the international version of J2SE.
